Notes & Reviews:

Bach's collection of Six Partitas titled "Clavierübung" represents the sum of what was written for keyboard instruments before him. On this recording, Pi-hsien Chen plays the two movements after the respective sarabandes (Partitas IV and VI), based on the research of Kenneth Gilbert, who stringently proved that the previous reverse order has been practiced due to the printing at that time having regard to turning the pages Pi-hsien Chen was born in Taiwan and came to Cologne at the age of nine. In the subsequent year she was admitted to the piano class of Hans-Otto Schmidt-Neuhaus at the Musikhochschule, where she passed her final exams in 1970. She continued her studies with Hans Leygraf at the Musikhochschule Hannover and visited master classes of Tatjana Nikolajewa, Geza Anda, Wilhelm Kempff, and Claudio Arrau. She won the first prize of the ARD International Piano Competition in Munich at the age of 21, and has performed with the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Zürich Tonhalle Orchestra, and almost all German Radio Symphony Orchestras.

A universe: the "Clavierübung" (keyboard practice) ... composed for Music-Lovers for the refreshment of their Spirits" - thus the complete edition of the six "Partitas" from 1731, published by Bach at his own expense to establish as a keyboard composer. is tending to this dialectic: Pi-hsien Chen is aiming at the mediation of object and subject - going far beyond the limits of the respective instrument.
